(AllHipHop News) On June 29, many gathered at Wesley Center AME Zion Church in Pittsburgh to mourn the loss of Jimmy Wopo.

The funeral service was attended by friends, family, and fans early Friday morning to remember real name Travon Smart, who was recognized as a buzzing local rapper.

The service began with a slight delay, as grieving members of Wopo’s family needed time to compose themselves.

A black casket of Smart’s body was closed as mourners lined up on the street to offer their condolences to his mother.

The 21-year-old was murdered on June 18 in a drive-by shooting in his Middle Hill neighborhood, the same day XXXTentacion was shot.

Two hours before the shooting, Wopo tweeted, “Runnin to the money.”

Wopo had big things coming for him, including a deal to embark on a summer tour with fellow Pittsburgh native Wiz Khalifa and his Taylor Gang imprint.
